Archaeology of the future. The architectural landscape of tomorrow

MAXXI Auditorium – admittance free subject to availability of places

A day of analysis and debate exploring the evolution of the relationships between contemporary architecture and the natural landscape

The landscape is the coming together of diverse temporalities, a kind of immense, timeless ruin. In its various forms, the natural landscape is at times capable of absorbing the built elements, transforming monuments into natural forms, in traces of absence or memory. Contemporary architecture no longer seems capable of aiming at eternity, but rather at the present, a infinitely replaceable present frequently entrusted to the virtual dimension. It is therefore worth asking what the meaning of place and identity will be tomorrow and whether they will coincide with those of architecture. What value will the monuments of the past take on and if they still exist what kind of monument will they be? How should we preserve them, how should we restore them to this civilization in continual construction?
